Re: SwOS version 2.9 released!

Upgraded about 4 of our RB260 series switches (2 of each) to this code.
The ACL page will not SAVE any changes.
Random bandwidth.
Reverting back to 2.8 code.
I do not recommend upgrading to 2.9.

BGP Lab - ISP configuration

I am working to build a BGP lab from 6 Router board RB2011ils-in and 1 360GSP switches. I want to be able to have something that both myself and my fellow engineers can play with to assist us in understanding the protocols. So, I am posting on this forum for your assistance in the configuration of t...

Re: SIP on PBX occasionally ceases to be able to register

With the last two updates my Grandstream system and phones has been having issues too. I just turned off my SIP ALG/Helper and there was no change either. I found out that if I do not connect the phones directly to the MikroTik router like another switch they register better, but calls fail through ...

I know I'm a bit late to this conversation, but I started playing with IPv6 on my MT lab. I really don't want to leave a input chain open for ALL ICMP, but the MT code is not really working right for IPv6. Or at lease I haven't found the right balance.

Just to throw out an update: Cisco said that here is no way to turn off their RSTP/STP enhancements and it is something they are moving full force with on all new IOS updates.
